The adorable Elf is a quick and simple knit. You’ll love the little characters, maybe even year-round, to decorate your home, office, the teacher’s desk, your kitchen window sill… you get the picture. Elves make wonderful gifts for all of the lovelies in your life.
The Elf is worked seamlessly in the round from the bottom-up. The hat is worked from the bottom-up and separately in the round. The scarf is worked separately in I-cord.
